September 23rd, 2013 in International Relations Department

“Cornel Ban, assistant professor of international relations, received the Stuart and Elizabeth Pratt Career Development Professorship. The award acknowledges Ban as an emerging leader in his field. Ban’s research has focused on economic issues in Brazil, Spain, and Romania, and spans three principal topics: international finance, international economic organizations, and the diffusion of international economic ideas. He describes his first book, Governing Crises: The International Politics of Crisis Economics from Bretton Woods to the Great Recession, not yet published, as “a cautionary tale about how much we don’t know about how the financial markets work.” He is an expert on the failure of economic models used by governments or international banks to predict the financial crisis that swept the world within the past decade.”  – BU Today
